    they have these listed on ableammo’s website, price is shockingly low, but they’ve been “out of stock” ever since i found them on the site… heres a link anyway for all those interested. ( http://www.ableammo.com/catalog/taurus-model-semi-auto-carbine-390161ctg2-black-synthetic-stock-black-finish-p-124826.html ) personally, i think everyone whining about the .45 capacity needs to grow up… there are SEVERAL reasons they WONT produce high cap mags for this rifle… as compact as it is, you’d have kids running around with them under regular jackets… the police would have a hard time suppressing someone with a 30 round mag full of .45. and just as with ANY other gun in the world… the bigger the bullet, the smaller the mag capacity… yeah i can see that the .45 clip is also about 4 inches shorter than the 9mm clip, but also consider the purpose MOST REAL PEOPLE will be buying these for…. to plink… or to show off…. if you’re plinking, 9mm makes WAY more sense, its A LOT cheaper…. and if you’re just showing it off to impress people, it doesnt matter what caliber it is because you most likely wont be firing it anyway. in my personal opinion, this is an awesome gun, nice to see a semi auto rifle in an affordable caliber, and with high cap mags in that affordable caliber… no room to complain here

    It looks nice – but 10+1 for 45??? Not really interested with that. I can see a limitation on 45 for pistols as the cartridges are much larger and you don’t want a handgun grip that is 8″ long – but this is a “carbine” We don’t care about magazine length. Get me a 30 rd 45Cal magazine or i’m not buying it.
